" is going to endorse barack obama. you know "the new york times" is going to endorse barack obama. >> right. clearly the newspapers matter in local elections and can matter in low turnout primaries. the "des moines register" and caucuses is gold. the argument is it's not just saying, hey, votes for this guy, a newspaper like the "times" makes arguments in favor of a candidacy, which can get picked up by others and commentators. does that just disappear into the echo chamber? >> i think it largely does. i agree with lauren. i would point out that many of these editorials are substantive in their pointing -- they're pointing out important stuff which goes to our last conversation. i'm not sure about the "des moines ridgester's" endorsement. i don't know how many people are really left who are in that persuadable category -- >> about 12. >> right. so 12 people -- >> in ohio -- >> maybe that will make a difference. >> i think you have to make tv ads out of joan doermof endorsem to have impact. >> they don't have the impact they used to. >> i think tv sad a good idea except that a lot of people
. >>> those that want to see x factor will be on my 28. we will be right back. president obama: there's just no quit in america... and you're seeing that r now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. athat's what the plan georged allen supports... would cost our economy. newspa
think obama has changed the u.s. approach? >> right, well, obama had said repeatedly that america is a pacific nation. and he's been refocusing foreign policy toward asia. commanders at the pentagon really poured resourcetowards this region. and obama tried to strengthen economic ties, for example, congress passed a free trade fact with south korea. but mitt romney and others say obama still hasn't done enough on issues such as the currency disparity with china. republicans say his approach to nuclear weapons is misguided. the professor says somewhere along the way, obama got sidetracked. >> like the working without nuclear weapons, he had an idea and this global vision, but middle east was so volatile and promising at the same time. during his administration. and naturally i think he was sort of shifted to that region instead of asia. >> but most americans care most about what happens at home. millions of them are still without work. we'll get the latest numbers on friday and no doubt voters will look to that as a cue to how obama has done. >>> opposition commanders in syria fear
are right now. >> the president has communicated weakness. >> jon: weakness in foreign policy! obama is weaker than coolidge in foreign policy! weaker than polk! weaker than president flinchington j. craphispants. (laughter) as you know, the only president in united states history who ever had his wallet stolen by a baby. (laughter) you don't hear as much about old president craphispants. (laughter) but given obama's foreign policy record, this debate is going to be a bloodbath. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely. and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i felt the same as the president did. i supported his action there. absolutely the right thing to do to have crippling sanctions. (cheers and applause) >> jon: i think romney's leaning obama! (laughter) apparently romney is one of this year's coveted swing voters. look, how closely did mitt romney align himself with what had, i guess up until last night, been the worst foreign policy ever? listen to th
. >> i want them to be sure to vote for the right person, mitt romney or obama, either or. >> reporter: the board of elections here expected by now, they have about 20,000 people who voted. instead, 35,000 weigh more than they expected. >>> president obama returned to the campaign trail today after touring the devastation from hurricane sandy. the big question now, will sandy affect the election? with more on the candidates' final pushes and early voting, we turn to wisdom martin with this week's campaign u. >> reporter: the topic this week, we're going to discuss with the professor and students, how much did the impact of superstorm sandy have or will it have on the election? professor, what is it going to do to the elect, if anything? >> five days before the election, the final lasting impressions are very, very important. what you have is devastation, president acting in charge solving problems but you have powerful imagery. americans are turned off by the hyperpartisanship. you have president obama and chris christie examining the damage, talking with each other and working togethe
like to set the country right side up. they understand president obama has been the leader in turning this country around, so much so that its growth and job creation keeps going up and up. they like to see an optimistic approach to government. that's what president obama has. they're also big believers in education. for a candidate like mitt romney who wants to abolish the department of education, we think we have a greater message for the independents, for women. we certainly are protecting women's health care. those are issues the independents are interested in. as well as the economy. who are they going to choose? someone who sides with sort of the antiquated views of abolishing or eliminated planned parenthood and attacking women's health care or look to someone who believes in embracing all of america. that's an optimistic view. we're optimistic and working hard and we really believe that nments along with those who are champions of president obama's cause will come to recognize that america is greater when we're united together. that's how the vote will turn out on november 6th
what's right for you at constantcontact.com/try. >>> in tonight's rewrite, more proof that the obama campaign is running a turnout election. the obama campaign in the closing weeks does not need to persuade voters to switch their support from mitt romney to barack obama. they simply need to persuade the supporters who support president obama to actually go out and vote for him. especially younger voters. the obama campaign has now delivered the hippest ad in the history of presidential campaigning, starring possibly the most ultra cool person in the history of television. >> your first time shouldn't be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. it should be with a guy with beautiful -- someone who really cares about and understands women. a guy who cares whether you get health insurance, you want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of iraq. or thinks that gay people should never have beautiful complicated weddings. it's a fun game to say who are you voting for and you say i don't want to tell you. think about how you want to spend those four years. in college
, it's got to be with the right guy. vote for obama, just like having sex with obama. you've got to choose the right guy. if i were a woman today, this -- i would feel insulted each and every day. the way they look at women. all thinking the same way. all wanting the same things. i think that ad, some people look at it and they'll think it's cool and hip and representative of the country day modern pop culture but i think it's an insult to women everywhere. this is the kind of thing you do in desperation when you do have an jaebd when you don't have anything positive to say about yourself. >> yes the hurler of insulths of women everywhere is suddenly the defender. every one you just heard from thinks of ronald reagan as a perfectly reasonable candidate for saint hood. he got 100% of the votes from the can't take a joke crowd and 110 votes from the can't take a dirty joke crowd. and today's uncomfortable fact that when he was running for president, ronald reagan told a double entendre joke that ingeniously included a double entendre that allows for both straight and gay. >> listen
. >> the unions in ohio is why obama's strong right now. >> show me by hand, how many of you voted for him in 2008? how many of you are definitely voting for him in 2012? what the hell happened? >> the promises weren't met. what we got is not what we thought we were going to get in 2008. >> i'm disappointed because he didn't do what he said he would do. but i'm not sure i like the alternative. >> who is leaning towards barack obama? who is leaning towards mitt romney? is romney in touch with you all? >> no. >> no. why not? tell me why not? >> romney is more focused on big business. >> if they find something and bring it against him, all of a sudden he changes his tune. i didn't say that. that's not what i meant. >> does obama understand you? >> i think barack obama grew up middle class or lower middle class. i think he can relate. i think that mitt romney always grew up wealthy. i think he relates to everything that we stand for. i mean, women's rights, children, raising children. he's a family man. that is how, i think, women -- why women like obama. is he a family man. he's been there with us. a
from undecided voters, right? like barack obama, i understand he got -- handed a bad economy, but things aren't as much better as i thought they were going to be and i like what mitt romney is saying how he sees the future looking like but i'm not sure how he gets there. >> we hear a lot of swing voters talking about the deficit and the debt. concerned about the economy, the jobs. but that's not abstract. they understand that on a fundamental level and that's a key pitch the republicans have been making. that issue does resonate with people at their kitchen table. >> all right. great conversation. thank you, guys. >> i got one question. one question for you, don. one question. >> yes. >> we're both in ohio. it is all cold. how come you look like you're on gq and i look like the michelin man. >> you should be asking yourself that question, ali velshi. >> thank you, ali. thank you john avalon. appreciate it. now to some serious news here. a new storm is threatening to make recovery efforts worse in the northeast. our meteorologist chad myers is here to tell us how bad it could
is probably going to win in the end. that's because of barack obama. states like nevada be a good example gwen: you say nevada? >> you're right. i'm going to get angry letters now. but i think it's a state where the votes are going to track very similar to the lines of the presidential race. gwen: how about montana? >> you're not seeing the opposite. there isn't a lot of romney coattail effect out of these states. a lot are really either competitive or leaning toward obama. it would not shock me if the race is decided by less than 1,000 votes. that's how tight it is. >> or how many people! [laughter] >> and indiana this week, gloria? that wasn't such a tight race and all of a sudden it is again the >> well, of course. because of remarks made my mourdock, who spoke about rape again and it sort of echoed todd achein, -- aikin, even though it was very different because he is opposed to any exceptions for a abortion. that is a difference from mitt romney's position, we should say. but what happens, when you have this be an issue in the campaign, and you talk about women being up for grarkss women
see barack obama and mitt romney crisscrossing each other throughout the midwest today. you tend to think it that where they go is where their attentions are at this point. so, how in play are wisconsin and ohio right now as far as swinging this one? >> well, wisconsin, the president won by 14 points where's trying to hold on and to get the one-vote victory to get all of the electoral votes. he did very well in northwestern wisconsin, a white rural area. he flipped 12 of 19 counties, which wasup pret precedented. in ohio -- unprecedented and in ohio, he won by five points, a sizeable margin, and he's back there trying to get those 18 electoral votes. the real question, i go back to pennsylvania, is romney engaging in a ultimate head fake or faint by going into pennsylvania on sunday? is it an app? a strategic design to get obama to go in to pennsylvania, or do they actually feel that those 20 electoral votes can be gained or is it an act of desperation? >> i want to bring it back home here to the district. the d.c. city council, the at- large incumbent michael brown is up for re
full-time at a community college right here in virginia. [applause] that is why i am so grateful that president obama and my husband are making quality investments to move us forward on education. i'm also involved in this election as a woman who cares about the direction of our country. i have seen barack and joe said that for our rights and freedoms every single day. -- stand up for our rights and freedoms every single day. the very first law put an obama signed with the lily ledbetter. the president and vice- president know how important it is for women to make our own decisions about our own bodies, our own health care. [applause] so many women of my generation have fought hard for roe versus wade, access to contraception and for equal rights. we don't want out daughters and granddaughters to have to go back and fight the same battles that we fought decades ago.

, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc

and get this country back on the right track. [applause] so it is not enough for us to complain about the broken promises or to simply highlight the fact that president obama cannot run on his record so he is trying to distort hours and distract people to win by default. this is why we are offering specific solutions, specific ideas in how to create 12 million jobs, how to get people back to work, how to confront our problems. number one, and here in ohio, here in this part of ohio, we have so much energy in this country. let's use this energy and put people back to work. let's use our coal and natural gas and oil and renewables. if we do this, that means american energy dollars go to american jobs. it helps manufacturers and brings down the price of energy. if the president gets reelected, he will keep regulating. he will keep shutting down federal land and shutting down oil and gas exploration. he will keep his war on coal. he will go back for his national energy tax. on day one, when we have a president romney and they asked him if he can build the keystone pipeline, he will say ye
they are right, but we don't see it that way. if we have that leaning obama. we shall see on monday whether any of them slip. we are monitoring them on an hourly basis. we are looking to the jobs report on friday. it may be the last piece of new information that could affect the election. host: any fallout or benefit from hurricane sandy for the candidates? guest: i think it's becoming clear that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the
, there is no indication that the obama administration is willing to clearly recognize iran's right to enriched uranium on its own soil. and, therefore, there won't be a deal. even if there's no deal and iran doesn't collapse, some policy elites continue to posit that sanctions and their version of diplomacy is all worth it. it is worth any and because iranians, middle eastern publics, and americans most importantly will come to see that iran's is suffering and inability to get a deal on the nuclear issue is the iranian government's fault. and, therefore, it will be understandable, and even justified for the united states in the end to strike iran militarily. but we should have no illusions about the strategic consequences of an overt war with the islamic republic. any new overt use of u.s. force to disarm yet another middle eastern state of weapons of mass destruction that it does not have, while staying quiet about israel's 200 plus nuclear weapons arsenal, would elevate already high level of anti-american sentiment in the middle east, threaten our remaining allies there, and render their cooperation
